Fans Corner: “Lucie’s determination and free spirit are infectious”
Fan Story shared by Jim Lanphere (USA)
I discovered the indomitable spirit, Lucie Safarova, at a tennis tournament in Indian Wells, a number of years ago. I watched in disbelief! She displayed extreme talent, courage and determination on every point. She displayed a spirit and joy for the game I had never seen before. Her eyes glittered with fun and happiness while delivering ferocious serves. She hit from the baseline and the net with svelte skill. Lucie is a joy to watch!!
Her attitude, determination and free spirited mannerisms are infectious. I have never actually been introduced to her, but have been in areas around her. Off the court she is the same determined and joyous woman. It is a blessing to be able to watch Lucie play and I enjoy her skills and spirit! I know she misses playing with Bethanie and I miss seeing them play together. I hope both heal better than ever and they can dominate Women’s Singles again soon. It’s been my honor to be a fan of Lucie and give her many thanks for infecting me with her joy and happiness for tennis and life.
You are #1 in my book.
